Windows Trick o' the Day

I knew this trick existed, but I couldn't remember it. If you to drill down through your directory structure all the time, this is a real time saver. In Windows Explorer, you can highlight a folder and full expand it (and it's children) using the * key on your far right keypad. Using the - key will contract all folders. Other good Windows tricks I know are using the Win Key (that's the one with the Windows logo on it). Win+r = run, Win+e = explorer and Win+d = desktop. And last but not least, in Win2K+ right-click >> Properties on My Computer will get you to System Properties. If you have other good tips for Red Hat 8, OS X or Windows - please share!

I just did some googling (and some blogging): Win + F = find and Win + Break = System Properties! Win + U = Utility Manager, which is quite surprising as well.. ;-) -Russ

Win+U doesn't seem to work for me. See for more...
